How Does It Work?

Noracore’s EMBSX resembles a hydraulic jack, but its purpose is much different. Its 14-gauge steel chassis sits low to the ground so that it can slide under your mower’s cutting deck with ease. The business end of this sharpener features a high-speed Tungsten Carbide bit that can spin at over 13,000 RPM. You can use either the angled mirror or the built-in inspection camera to line up the sharpener to your mower blade without ever having to bend over or lift up the mower.


The EBMSX runs on pneumatic power, so you’ll need a compressor that can maintain 120 PSI and an air hose. After hooking up to the compressor, you can choose to connect your camera, though this step won’t be absolutely necessary as the angled mirror will suffice for most two-bladed mowers. Next, you’ll position the sharpener under the mower deck and align the grinding bit with the blade. Squeezing the trigger will get the bit spinning, at which point you’ll run the bit back and forth over the blade.


The EMBSX can work at both 30° and 45° angles, the most common angles you’ll come across with mower blades. It can tackle straight blades as well as mulching blades, and you won’t ever have to actually remove the blades to get them back to sharp, saving you a whole lot of time and hassle.

This sharpener features fingertip variable speed control, and you can adjust the chassis height to allow use with any mower. The EMBSX can be configured for righties and lefties, and it comes with a phone holder and LED lights on the camera. Plus, when the job is done, you can fold it over for easy storage or transport.


The Noracore EMBSX comes with two grinding bits (one tungsten carbide and one abrasive), two grinder wrenches, two Allen keys, a USB charging cable, a 120V wall plug, and an air tool oil container. You can pick it up for $499 by reaching out to Noracore through the website, where you can also purchase any replacement parts you might need. Noracore designed, engineered, and assembled the EMBSX in the USA, and it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
